Skunk Removal In Germantown TN

Skunk Trapping In Germantown TN - Skunk Removal

Have you noticed some striped little visitors hanging around your home or property?  Are skunks making you a little nervous to go outside?  We understand!  Many of our clients are very wary of these pretty little creatures, and for good reason.  Nobody wants to be sprayed by a skunk!

Skunks are much like cats in a lot of ways.  Many people will even keep descented skunks as pets, but you should never forgot that this is and will always be a wild animal at heart.

At Apex Wildlife Control, our skilled technicians are trained to humanely trap and relocate these stinky little guests.  We release these animals into a wildlife area over twenty miles from your home to enjoy life out where they belong.

Skunk Trapping In Germantown TN - Skunk Damage

Skunks are generally easygoing and stay outside of your home.  However, they can still do damage to your lawn and garden.  Those sharp claws will dig up tasty grubs and worms, and many a skunk has tasted those fresh summer fruits and vegetables grown in the back yards of Germantown.  Its so aggravating to watch all your hard work ruined by these little nocturnal scavengers. 

Skunks are also prone to going through your trash.  Just like raccoons and opossums, they are not above tipping over your garbage cans for yummy leftovers.

Skunk Removal In Germantown TN - Skunk Mating Season

Valentine’s Day can be a very stinky time of the year, especially if you have skunks around! 

Male skunks start wooing the female skunks from January to mid March.  The males will sometimes travel up to five miles in search of females, and that’s a long way for those short little legs to walk.  Of course, when they get there they may be in for a rude awakening.  Female skunks aren’t always interested, and they show it by spraying the male skunks right in the kisser!  How rude!

Of course, if the mating season is successful the female will give birth in the spring and raise her babies alone, and the males simply return to their bachelor ways until next season.

Skunk Trapping In Germantown TN - That Terrible Smell!

Skunks don’t go around spraying willy-nilly.  Once they use up their spray, it can take them up to ten days to renew their supply.  So in order to save their spray for life or death situations, they prefer to avoid conflict.

Their first warning to stay away is to lift their tail straight up and growl, much like a cat or dog.  If that doesn’t work, their second warning is to stomp their front feet together in a way that they apparently think is quite menacing.  But its terribly cute, especially when the babies do it!  However, you would be wise to read this skunk body language correctly, because you won’t like what comes next.

When all else fails, the skunk will whip their body into a U shape and spray.  Skunks have uncanny aim and can spray from over ten feet away.  Consider yourself warned!

We also perform wildlife trapping in Germantown TN for rats, mice, squirrels, moles, 

opossums, raccoons, armadillos and much more.
